Sinkhole Cause Determined

    SinkholeUpdate/Dawn Parker

    The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the City of Texarkana are working together to pinpoint the cause of a sinkhole on U.S. Highway 67 between Pine and Olive Streets through Texarkana.

    The cause was determined to be a cracked pipe that is no longer in use. Texarkana Water Utilities has agreed to repair and reinforce the pipe. TxDOT will fill the area around the pipe and repave the area. Work is scheduled to get underway today and should take a week to complete.

     Weather conditions could affect the work schedule, so it is subject to change.
